In his meeting yesterday afternoon with Secretary General Kurt Waldheim, Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban furnished the Secretary General with “further proofs of the premeditated Arab attack on Israel” on Yom Kippur, according to an Israeli spokesman. Also discussed in the meeting was the “hysterical atmosphere” that prevailed in the Security Council meeting on Tuesday afternoon, when the Council members were sending condolences to non-existing Soviet victims in Damascus, and Egypt was inciting the Council members with non-existing Israeli air raids on Cairo.

It was recalled that Israeli Ambassador Yose Tekoah, who addressed the Security Council meeting Tuesday evening said: “My delegation will join in the expression of sympathy by members of the Security Council for all the victims of the renewed warfare, men, women and children, irrespective whether they are Egyptian, Syrian, Israeli or citizens of other states.”
